Butcheries in Cape Town

A selection of sizzling spots to buy boerewors, biltong and braai meat

A leisurely afternoon braai is, arguably, one of South Africa’s most prominent cultural cornerstones, so much so, in fact, that Heritage Day on 24 September has been unofficially dubbed National Braai Day. But to make an outdoor barbeque – or any other meaty cook-up, for that matter – a memorable social success, it’s paramount that you have easy access to top-notch products: succulent beef steaks, choice lamb chops, fresh free-range chicken and tasty boerie, for instance.

So, to make sure you’re not without your fix of fine, juicy cuts, we, in collaboration with the nation’s top braai master, Jan Braai (who, incidentally, is also the brain behind the National Braai Day concept), have rounded up a guide to some of Cape Town’s first-rate butcheries, butcher shops and meat delis, some with specific specialities and others with expertise in almost anything. Now, buy, braai and savour every bite.
